WIPS

Since last time I updated my blog I have tidied my sewing room. When we moved home from our holiday up in Hemsedal in August I only placed my things on the floor in my room and left them there. When we finally moved home it was so untidy that there was only a narrow path to my table. Something had to be done, so I told my husband to leave me alone for a couple of days and started the hard work. It was a complete chaos. I kept on from the early morning till late night for more than two days but then it was done. I found several projects in slow progress “Wips” and decided to finish them all before I started something new.

Here is the first one of my Wips: last year’s Christmas Mystery from QuiltSkandinavia and Merete Veian. I had done two of four blocks and they showed nice flowers. I finished the last two and made four placemats which I took with me up to the cottage in Hemsedal without taking a picture last weekend.


Next, I found many precut squared batic fabrics that was probably made for making another bag like this one: I made another one but have still some precut squares left.

Then I started on my liftcurtain. I made the panel a couple of years ago, but when I had finished the machine quilting it was a “pocket” in the pattern and I lost the interest for a long time. Now I have ripped up all the stitches that were needed for doing the machine quilting over again. I machine quilted it over again, put on the batting and made the lift curtain and hang it up.

The next project was from some old jeans I had. I had cut and sewed together a few parts a long time ago. What I planned to make I cannot remember, but now I decided to make a new bag. You can never have enough bags, can you? Here it is.
I show both sides here. I used the pockets on the jeans to get the effect of just a jeans. Inside I have made many pockets, also one with a zipper.

Then I used some leftovers and made a new little purse and a little one for my mobile. Here are the picture of those items:

The only thing left now is a stitchery for my granddaughter a couple of years ago that is almost finished. I made a mistake and cut off the batting and the backing and there we are. I am not sure of what I will do next to finish it. She will have it as a Christmas present.

Sånn ja. Fint å kunne se bildene. Hvilke lommer på lift gardinen er det du prater om? Skal det være noen pinner der? Har aldri laget slike gardiner så jeg vet ikke :) Sluttresultatet blir flott da!
